Medical Coding Salary Survey
Statistics drawn from our annual Medical Coding Salary Survey give resounding validation to the value of healthcare certifications through AAPC. Certifications substantiate expertise and emphasize the benefits of education in one of the fastest growing careers in the United States*.

Work of a Coder Survey
In January 2008, the AAPC invited medical coders to participate in a survey on the work they do. Medical coders were informed of the survey through three email invitations to AAPC members; an invitation posted on the public home page of the AAPC Web site; and through press releases distributed to numerous magazines and Web sites with coder audiences.
